  1. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    From my experience, "the general player base" doesn't really care about the reserve list, so while it may be true that they don't think of it in a bad light, it is more of the case that they don't...
  2. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    How can you say that it would not be bad optics, when every outcome of WOTC attempting to circumvent the reserve list ended up with WOTC further restricting their interpretation of that promise they...
  3. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    Yeah, but who wants that "actual magic product", who is it for and what would it cost? The people who want duals to play with, and are actually willing to spend the money for them is very small....
  4. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    This issue only matters to people who play sanctioned paper legacy/ vintage magic, and people who play paper, no proxy competitive edh, no other players really care about duals since they wont ever...
  5. Re: Do you think Wizards will ever again print dual lands that are better than shocks

    WOTC are already doing better every year, year over year, selling regular stuff, in spite of how messed up formats were for that stretch from war of the spark onwards for a few years. Nobody cares...

    Re: WotC Ending Pro Play Discussion

    Yeah the gps are great but I think specifically for pro level events like the pro tour Maro said he didn't want legacy as a pro tour format because of card availability issues. I think he said this...

    Re: WotC Ending Pro Play Discussion

    The failure of pro play most likely has much more to do with their incompetence than pro play not being valuable. I doubt WOTC has discovered something that nobody else knows, there is a reason all...

    Re: WotC Ending Pro Play Discussion

    They probably went for esports as part of their plan to enter the market that Hearthstone created. While their esports stuff certainly didn't interest me, I am also willing to admit that I am not the...

    Re: All B/R update speculation.

    This is why I am critical of modern wotc printing practices starting with the masters sets and haven't purchased any product in years. They saw that the secondary market was pricing cards very high...

    Re: All B/R update speculation.

    I assume it is something like pro play was their attempt to foster personalities that could be good ambassadors for the game, specifically in marketing. This was traditionally the case with how pro...

    Re: Modern Horizons 2 Previews

    Whats with wotc embracing the old border again, especially in a set called modern masters? Those old border foil fetches are going to be absurdly expensive.
  12. Re: How would a ban of Fetchlands in Legacy impact our favorite format?

    I'm pretty sure this was discussed like 100+ pages ago in the bnr thread. But I think the general summary was:

    people would initially pack more duals/ non basics to fix correctly, but those would...
  13. Re: Strixhaven (Back to School[s of Magic] this April)

    The Kaladesh border was nice, but every other one isn't good, it might have been nice as a rare thing, but now that every set has like normal, borderless and collector edition border, which are...
  14. Re: Let's Draft the Timespiral Again! Timespiral remastered

    I can't help but feel like this is sort of how someone in an abusive relationship would feel like when their abusive spouse is trying to lure them back after years of constant neglect.
  15. Re: MtG crossover with Warhammer 40k and a full LotR set in the making

    I mean you can say that, but they just went through a period where they had the most atrocious constructed formats ever over multiple rotations, had to go on numerous banning sprees, on top of that...
  16. Re: MtG crossover with Warhammer 40k and a full LotR set in the making

    You just have to accept that the demographic they are targeting is different than the one it had before. Product fatigue may be a thing for veteran players, but for mass market consumers that burn a...

    They are kind of stuck now, they cant un-print the cards they did, and I doubt they would ban them because consumers really hate when the power level is lowered. Its like when Patrick Sullivan made...
  18. Re: What guarantee is there that fakes that pass all the tests arenít already out the

    Having the correct ink and technique is also needed, there were 'fakes' made back in the day by a Cartamundi employee using the same equipment, but he couldn't get the ink settings correct so they...

    Sticky: Poll: Re: All B/R update speculation.

    Talking about what should and shouldn't be banned doesn't really matter when the design paradigm of legacy essentially forces any new cards to be borderline bannable if they want to see any real...
  20. Re: What guarantee is there that fakes that pass all the tests arenít already out the

    Why try to counterfeit rl cards when there are plenty of modern cards that are much more liquid and much less scrutinized? Hell, WOTC QC and the 5 variants they make of every card now makes it...

    Re: Kaldheim. It's going to have Snow. And Vikings.

    Its gotten to the point where the criticism eventually became a (bad) joke, and now they are hamming up the joke because they think it is funny.

    After the success of innistrad they probably realized they had struck gold with top down design, which is why majority of everything since has been built on top of a derivative of some real world...

    Spoilers don't have that same type of excitement when they are just going to break formats every time. With that said I look forward to the new simic Tibalt!
